I am an agnostic Atheist (Because i do not KNOW there is no god) but do you celebarate christmas?
DenoPenno comments on Nov 14, 2020:
I'm not sure that I celebrate Christmas. A better word for me is participate . As a single man today I do not participate in Christmas but I would do so if I had a wife, or had a wife and children. My reasoning is that if it is not important to me it might be important to them. Who am I to tell you what to do about holidays. Keep in mind however that "holiday" comes from the term "holy day." A big celebration because of a holy day. I would go out of my way to inform anyone that Christmas has nothing to do with Christ or a mass and it certainly was not Jesus' birthday. Many argue that I should have a tree and decorations anyway but my argument in return is that I see all the other house decorations and lights just by going outside my door. I might add that i do not give gifts and have asked family and friends to treat me the same, however if one of my daughters is free to fix a big meal for all of us I do attend the dinner to be with family.

DenoPenno comments on Nov 13, 2020:
It probably will not happen. I saw a GMC Yukon in a parking lot today with writing all over it. I'm surprised that anyone driving could see out the windows. The writing said '"JESUS IS MY SAVIOR -- TRUMP IS MY PRESIDENT." Whoever owns this vehicle is ignoring the clear electoral votes for Biden and wants to believe in the nonsense of Trump winning with 214 electorals. They do not understand at all and might be willing to go to war over this issue. As far as being religious goes they are about as Christian as the Tooth Fairy.
When trump steps down, he will become a born again Christian and start a mega church.
DenoPenno comments on Nov 13, 2020:
Anything is possible but I hear that Trump wants to start a rival news channel against Fox News as he is angry that Rupert Murdoch turned on him. That would be a hoot. Maybe Qanon will help him with that.
In the last election, 70+ million Americans voted for a white supremacist for POTUS.
DenoPenno comments on Nov 13, 2020:
I don't see any difference. It's sort of like the young man in the Midwest who claimed he was not racist, he just didn't think "that darkie" (Obama) should be in the White House. My friend tells me now of his neighbor who objects to Kamala Harris because "Biden will die and that leaves her as president." OK, and this means what? Please tell me what this means? It reminds me of my insurance lady saying she is against forgiving student loans because she had to pay damn good money for her education and that of her kids. This is only a step away from resenting that family in front of you at the super market because they are using a food stamp card. WTF? You had to pay for your food. A step away from that you hear of those who oppose Medicare for all because they had to wait many years and pay into the system to get it. This is all no more than the ones who are better off justifying themselves by saying they deserve it and others who did not work as hard do not. The proof is that we do not know how hard anyone has worked. It should all start by getting a good education. This is what levels the playing field. Many claim blacks do not want education and they are blind to history showing how we once had separate schools just like whites had separate food, water, hotels, etc. It took a while but we can thank LBJ for some changes here. MLK also.

Organized religion in my area is nothing more than a club or lodge and those who go to the meetings have friends, companions, and a belief that they are right. I don't think everyone believes the god bit of it but they have to have that community part. What pisses me off is that I can't go to a senior center without the religious crap carrying over. I don't want to pray, stand and say a pledge, or any other nonsense.

I favor heat using water heater type devices that puts hot water in radiators with a fan forced delivery system. It may or may not be cheaper and it might depend on where you live. No steam heat. With that said, I have electric heat in my mobile home and I also have Eden pure heaters I can use. About 2 years ago I got radiator type oil filled heaters and experimented to see if I could get cheaper electric bills. All of these work fine really but I learned a kilowatt is a kilowatt. :)

Rescind every executive order that Trump put his name on. Change foreign policy, go with Paris accords, back NATO, cut military spending, check into the green new deal and Medicare for all. We must also restore the EPA or lose clean water and food along the way. Our country should be set up for "we the people" but the Trump way of doing that is all for millionaires. I named some people to my insurance lady today and she told me they run the country. I said they would like to run the country maybe, but they don't. Her biggest gripe is that we should have "legal immigration." When was it not legal? **Trump spews that Mexico is not sending it's best, they are sending rapists thieves, and killers**. STOP. What we need to wake up to is the fact that nobody is being sent. People are often coming here in fear for their lives and they have dangerous conditions and surroundings. They want a better life. We should all want a better life and a better world. As for Trump's wall it's mostly a smoke screen and a talking point for Cult 45.

DenoPenno comments on Nov 12, 2020:
I have to agree that I sometimes use the phrase "thank god." It means nothing to me really but again I'm the guy who never can believe that all these people are "praying for you" even as they say it. We get conditioned into this just by living in our society. Back when Pat Robertson had interest in African diamond mines I'm told he prayed over it and tried to make bargains with his god that he deserved it, etc. Very pathetic. Going back into that last mega Powerball win, I dreamed the winning numbers coming to me on the Starship Enterprise. I played those numbers too. Since then I have stopped playing the lottery for a while.

'What Was Your Normal?
DenoPenno comments on Nov 12, 2020:
Your last sentence brings it all out and Trump knew this from the beginning. It was all hidden and he wanted to stir it all up again using his base and his hate rallies. This is why there were "fine people on both sides" at Charlottesville. Racists then openly ran for office and one such racist white man told a reporter he would rather kill her as look at her. WTF is this? It is the re-kindled hate that others think will "go back to normal." This will never happen. It makes me sick. Whites do not see the distraction of idiot arguments and some fail to see they are racist. I've heard of some who do not want Kamala Harris in office coz Biden will die and then she is president. Others ask "do you want them living next door to you?" Some have even wanted to grill me on how I "have to hate" my Kenyan ex-wife. No, I don't and you all make me sick. The one good thing out of Trump is that I now have fewer friends. Not that I wanted fewer friends but the fact that you learn to see people for what they are.
I hope Biden has opened his eyes now, he wants to be civil with republitards?

Will the President’s Lawsuits Overturn the Election?
DenoPenno comments on Nov 10, 2020:
The Trump lawsuit claiming a stolen election has zero proof to stand on. This is why I do not think it will ever reach Supreme Court review in any way. Trump has Barr and others working on getting evidence but they just do not have any evidence. Rupert Murdoch owns and controls Fox News and many others world wide with the name of the game being the making of money. It was OK to back Donald Trump in everything he did during the last 4 years because the controversy would cause situations that would make money. When Biden was shown to be the winner by electoral vote Kathryn Murdock said "I think we should go with this." She is the wife of James Murdoch one of the conservative sons who control the Murdoch empire. This may have split the Murdoch family but it is also why the election was called in Arizona. Trump could not get any more electoral votes and the Murdochs do not want any lawsuits that may cause them to lose money. Trump has been told to concede but he will not and now Fox News is not his friend. Media in general is not putting up with Trump's claims without evidence either. Once the lying starts media simply cuts it all off. I think this is a good reason that Trump is done. He don't know it yet and this messes up all of his financial world also and that's another reason he will not concede. Put a fork in him. Trump is done.

I found this interesting in that we are told by the Trumpers that "the media called the election." Now I understand that owners of Fox Noise were some of the first to do so, and they called it in Arizona. This made Trump and others really mad. I'm sure the Murdochs want to avoid lawsuits and especially those that you cannot win. This would seem to show that moves Trump is making right now have little or no chance of success. Convincing Maddog Trump of this is maybe next to impossible. Hey, Donald. You served your purpose but your time is over now.

I view this as any cold or flu shot would be and I don't think taking if if you have COVID will help you. If my medical plan wants to give it to me free then bring it on.

DenoPenno comments on Nov 8, 2020:
While I can agree with you I have to ask you a few questions. Biden claims to be a Christian and is Catholic right? This means he is a believer and so are the majority of people who voted for him or Trump. If the majority are believers this would be those whom Biden is wanting to address. So, what is the problem? Do you want Biden to be a Seventh Day Adventist or do you want him to also include atheists? I think what Biden is trying to do is to unify people so the nation can go on with healing. If both political parties modify themselves this might be possible. If not, we go on again in the future with the same old anger as before. I hope this helps you somewhat.

We should be wary and in fear of anything he might try next, and this includes illegal court actions and even wanting his base to do all out war. Both his boys seem OK with that and so does Steve Bannon. Ultimate victory here depends on whether the media still wants to treat Trump's words as truth without any evidence at all. If media can call his bluff we might get Biden confirmed.
Dancing in the street. [] .
DenoPenno comments on Nov 8, 2020:
Celebrating in my mind, doing electioneering aftermath online, staying on top of everything and also trying to convince a friend to turn herself in after she missed a court date. Her case seemed simple but is a bit beyond me, so she has to learn to take advice and just go with it now. This is also what our country needs to do because half of us still think that Trump won. The fight to a confirmation on Biden will continue as half of us think voting went on after November 3rd, but that did not happen. There was then a deadline set for delivery of votes while the Post Office played an orchestrated part by design to sabotage delivery. Next came a time line for vote counting when there is none. More confusion still. Trump again wants to count and throw out votes in areas where he did not win and ultimately wants to take this all to the Supreme Court to decide him as the winner when he did not get the electoral votes that would make that possible. Yes, there should be dancing in the streets but we have a long way to go yet and we should fear what might happen. In my mind this all depends on what credibility media gives to Donald Trump and his claims which have no evidence.

DenoPenno comments on Nov 7, 2020:
I've been electioneering all day and happy about this, of course. When people say it is not over yet they are exactly correct. Trump will sue, kick and scream, and flop around like a chicken with its head cut off. Trump claims falsely that he won. He knew something like this could happen, and it did. Now into what really happened here. Trump told his people that you had to vote in person and that absentee and mail in voting was so full of fraud. He even said some people would be able to vote twice. LOL It is not true. Many vote this way and always will because of their location, etc. Trump and all politicians vote this way because they are never seen at a polling place and being slapped on the back, shaking hands, and talking. Trump tried to take over the Post Office to stop these votes. It failed. All voting has a time frame to it but once the voting was done it went into the counting of the votes. This took much more time and there is no cut off for the counting. Every vote must be counted and Trump and his GOP cannot control or oversee this process. This is simply not allowed. People complain that they do not get it because Trump was ahead. Then all votes switched to Biden. Yes. The Trump votes were mostly November 3rd and were counted first. Next was the absentee or mail ins. Again, all votes must be counted. Biden got over the required number of electoral votes. Trump declared himself the winner but was stuck at 214 electoral votes. He needed 270 to win but stopping the count does not make Trump the winner. If you add in Georgia at 16 electorals and North Carolina at 15, then Alaska at 3 electorals Trump has a possible 244 electoral votes. It means he did not win. That's it. Trump is done and it is over. There is no way around this even trough the Supreme Court. This is the Democratic process we have in this country and Trump lost. His legal teams cannot stop Biden from being a confirmed winner but in the meantime Trump will say anything and do anything that he can. He will not do a peaceful transition here. Some are even wanting to declare an all out war. Trump Jr. is one of them and he looks like a confused man about to cry who is in need of rehab. Imagine all that may go on between now and January 20th. America could become hell on Earth and we are told about the dangers of the "radical left." Looks the other way around to me, and frankly I am scared! Finally the media has come out in refuting Trump and this even includes Fox News.

Joseph, Mary, and Jesus could be a case in point.
Just a wee thought/point of or for discussion here IF anyone feels like reading/discussing it.
DenoPenno comments on Nov 6, 2020:
Your thinking here is absolutely true. Suppose for a moment that there was a real Jesus of biblical times. His lineage is given for a reason although one gospel distorts it somewhat. They were looking for an Earthly King and not a heavenly one. When Mary is said to be impregnated by the "holy spirit of god" this is a way of saying that Joseph was that person and explains the controversy. It happens in our modern world all the time and people marry later. In the bible it explains why the lineal heritage was given. Books of the bible NT being written long after the fact, the myths (and changes) started to set in and you see what we have today in churchworld.

DenoPenno comments on Nov 6, 2020:
It could have but we do not know for sure. The safe way was to vote absentee or mail in and that's why this method was pushed at us. my polling place did social distancing but the mask was not required. Many are so narrow minded that they said the virus would go away once the election was over. That's right. They believed that the virus was created just to get rid of Donald Trump because impeachment did not work. Oh, come on. It is worldwide and not created by one of the American political parties. How would that work? As for the virus itself, imagine a strong germ released into the air and just give it time. If it has no host it will weaken. It will also mutate. This is the curve they talk about. The key with this is whether you host that virus or not. Study of the Spanish Flu and what happened in 1918 to 1920 with it will help understanding COVID today. The sad part is the Americans who claim some religious right, Constitutional right, or god's protection. This behavior will not make it go away.
Religion is obviously a scam : atheism
DenoPenno comments on Nov 5, 2020:
Religion is a scam that took me a long time to escape from. In my lifetime I have anguished and even cried over religion and what others told me it meant for me. Then, one day I woke up. No dreams of hell, no wondering if I did the right thing, no invisible man in the sky.

DenoPenno comments on Nov 5, 2020:

DenoPenno comments on Nov 5, 2020:
I have English and Dutch ancestry but nothing I can nail down. I'm sure there is some native American there but it is just family folk lore that I was hearing. I'm sort of a mutt. I don't have a pedigree of the pure blood that Nazi's and others claimed in error that they had.
Why was the popular vote so close in the US presidential election?
DenoPenno comments on Nov 5, 2020:
Strangely we had time today at my workplace to discuss some of this in a civil way. I found it amusing that when I said Trump wanted the counting stopped when he saw he was losing, a couple of co-workers said with a straight face that he wanted counting stopped as he was winning. As if that would make any difference at all. I was quick to point out to those who claimed Trump won that he only had 214 electoral votes. That isn't winning. Then one man wanted to know why there was so much counting and no answers would satisfy him. He claimed that Mexicans and other illegals would be voting before it's over just to get the numbers up. Now read that again and even try reading between the lines and you will find out what is wrong with Trump supporters. In short, they simply believe what they want to believe. I get it that everyone is angry and both parties need to fix this. It was all of this anger that got Trump elected. What his supporters got was false hope. I think they were tired of lies out of DC.

DenoPenno comments on Nov 4, 2020:
One thing I can predict with great accuracy. Trump and friends want to call it right now and are very desperate. How does that work? Donald Trump does not have the required 270 electoral votes to win. It means you cannot call it. One candidate or the other has to get the required 270 electorals. That's how this thing works.
I thank me for my daily bread.
DenoPenno comments on Nov 4, 2020:
My take on this is that if Jesus said "man shall not live by bread alone" and then went into some spiritual nonsense it would mean people ate a lot of bread in that time. Sometimes maybe bread only. maybe it's all some people had.

Easy to see why Satanists want in on the action. It points out how wrong this is.

Witches Outnumber Presbyterians in the US; Wicca, Paganism Growing 'Astronomically' - The Christian ...
DenoPenno comments on Nov 2, 2020:
Wicca and paganism are growing because a great amount of people burned out on religion think they have to believe in something. Let them do as they will. This disturbs Christians because they think they are losing control.
But their imaginary friend will take care of it.
DenoPenno comments on Nov 2, 2020:
The root of the problem here is a group that wants to rape and plunder the Earth without any worries from the EPA. In other words, corporations that want to profit without worrying or caring what the are doing to the environment. It follows that they do not care about individual healthcare, food, water, or air quality. To get around things of this nature successfully they have started political groups that slowly convince the public on these issues. Sides are taken and many end up claiming their imaginary friend in the sky is really in control so nothing matters. They are wrong. If anyone can see what I am saying this issue is much greater than what Trump or Biden believe. Some do not believe me here, but let's take it back to Citizens United. The door has been opened for corporations to enjoy freedom of speech without limit. What it means is that their giant dollars speak a lot louder than your lesser dollars. An understanding of this shows how things are controlled today. Maybe in time it will be 1900 again. Maybe even earlier than that. Names like Kock, Mercer, Devos, et al certainly hope so. Of course, that is for us and not for them. They openly want to be a ruling class without regard for others.
Upcoming FFRF report warns about biased federal judiciary - Freedom From Religion Foundation
DenoPenno comments on Nov 2, 2020:
Indeed we will have interesting times. What seems to interest me the most is that I have access to tweets and quotes that others appear to ignore or simply pick and choose what they believe. I'm talking about the last 4 years. Then distraction experts go back into much earlier to define their anger. We must deal with now and the last 4 years. As far as religion goes are we becoming the Christian version of the Islamic State or maybe just the American Taliban? I find it interesting that some Christians have said we have to catch up because these groups are getting ahead of us. WTF?

Any suggestions as to how to emotionally prepare for the election?
DenoPenno comments on Nov 2, 2020:
I have no advice. What I know is that everything should have been bipartisan rather than the hate that I see. Any POTUS that is truly president of us all would have worked toward that goal rather than making it worse for 4 years. The Trump ego makes him his own worst enemy. Seeing and hearing him on any issue also makes him mine. If he goes I will be glad. If he stays I will again try to ignore him for 4 more years. There is no reason for either side to become involved in violence. The problem is, some are encouraging it. You can hardly say that the Proud Boys are radical left. In fact, I see no BS coming out of the left. My best hope here is that the Senate may get enough Democrats if Trump gets re-elected. Would we then have a lame duck Trump? If Trump loses by a landslide I will say "it could not have happened to a nicer man."

Is it possible that I had a better understanding of atheism? Maybe I'm just at a different stage in my life than the letter writer. All people are not the same.

DenoPenno comments on Nov 1, 2020:
Depending on where you live many bad things could happen. People are very aware that Donald Trump is not likely to agree to a friendly exchange of power should he lose. This means his supporters with guns might be active in some areas. It's really a shame that people cannot see through this for what it really is.

This is true. In my church daze I used to almost cry about the starving and homeless or those with physical deformities. I wanted to give money for them so badly. They are still around today and will likely always be around. The middle men in this are still pushing their stories and also taking their cut of the donated money, and doing it tax free.
